The founder members of the league were Brecon St John's, Felindre, Llandrindod Wells, Llanwrthwl, Llanwrtyd, Presteigne St. Andrew's, Rhayader Town and Whitton.[1] Felindre were the first league champions.

The league lies in the fifth level of the Welsh football league system. Teams may be promoted to the Mid Wales Football League if standards and facilities fall into line with the regulations of the Mid Wales League. There is no league directly below the South League however.

The league is sometimes written as the "Mid-Wales League (South)".

In the 2019-20 season, when the season was curtailed due to the coronavirus pandemic, Brecon Corries were champions with a 100% record of 16 wins from 16 games with 143 goals scored and just two conceded.[2] In addition to these statistics the team scored a 27-0 win at Knighton Town Reserves which was expunged from the record books following Knighton’s withdrawal from the league.
